by Marty Gitlin |

White Sox retiring designated hitter Paul Konerko is slated to return this weekend in Tampa Bay from a fractured hand that has kept him out since Sept. 2. But Robin Ventura doesn't want to rush him.

"I think during the weekend we'll be able to give him hopefully a couple of at-bats," Ventura told "If he's up for it, he can probably DH one of those games."

Konerko could play significantly when the team returns home as he concludes his farewell season.
